I love the diversity, the campus scene, and the professors. The security is beyond amazing and makes the school feel extremely safe, your ID is needed at all times. The professors are so invested in helping that there's no way to not be able to overcome an obstacle. What I would like see change is putting back the campus bookstore, it is now avaiable online. I dislike online shopping as it is, I think making it online takes away the campus life feeling. Other than that, Brooklyn College rocks!

This was my first experience being away from home at college and overall it was great! I enjoyed the college campus scene which gave me a little home feeling. The grass is green and freshly cut in the spring, there are tons of clubs and events being offered. Students and faculty are diverse and very friendly however the one thing I would change is making Transfer Evaluation Day earlier in the time before the semester starts so students have ample time to change their schedule if needed.
Gorgeous campus. You certainly see diversity at every corner of the school. Really good library and great staff. Campus food needs to be improved! Over all, a fine institution.
